Kokatat SeaO2 Kayak Lifejacket - The SeaO2 Vest is the first UL-approved hybrid inflatable PFD designed for kayaking. Easy to paddle and swim in, this lightweight design inflates from 7.5 to 22.5 pounds of flotation in three seconds via a CO2 cylinder. It can be inflated, deflated and rearmed without removing the vest. An oral inflation tube allows you to adjust the amount of flotation on the fly, or to manually inflate the jacket if you are out of CO2. The side zipper makes for easy entry and exit, and 6 points of adjustment allow you to perfectly customize the fit. The mesh back design accommodates the taller seats found in many of today's touring and recreational kayaks, and in conjunction with the mesh sides provides excellent ventilation. The roomy mesh front pocket provides plenty of room for key essentials, as well as a smaller radio pocket. Front and back reflective tape aids visibility in low-light conditions, and lash tabs keep knives and beacons securely in place.
Pulling on the Kokatat Sea O2 Personal Flotation Device front tab releases a CO2 cartridge into the hidden internal air chamber and inflates this PFD for added flotation. While the Sea 02 Personal Flotation Device provides 7. 5lb of buoyancy without air, it increases to an impressive 22. 5lb when inflated. Kokatat added a manual inflate valve to conserve CO2 or to be used in emergencies. More along the in-the-boat side of things, this PFD comes with a mesh back to add comfort while paddling, and two front pockets hold all your on-the-water necessities.
